A Stanton man was convicted Monday of possessing child pornography and annoying a 12-year-old girl at a local public library, authorities said.

Alejandro Lorenzo Contreras, 24, pleaded guilty to a court offer to one misdemeanor count of possession of child pornography and one misdemeanor count of child annoyance, the Orange County district attorney's office said.

Prosecutors said Contreras followed three girls into the Stanton library on July 13 and caused them to feel uncomfortable. He then followed them outside and asked the 12-year-old to take a cellphone photo of herself and send it to his cellphone, according to prosecutors.

Contreras was arrested after the girl told authorities. He had a pornographic photo of another child on his cellphone, prosecutors said.

He is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 7 at the Westminster courthouse. He is expected to be sentenced to one year in jail, three years of formal probation and mandatory sex-offender registration, the district attorney's office said.
